After a week of voting, the fourth round of the Cold Water Challenge Face-off guessing game has its winner! Chief Ronald J. Siarnicki, a frequent and regular contributing author to FireRescue1 and Fire Chief, just barely beat out Chief John M. Buckman III, Fire Chief's editorial advisor, with a total of 35 votes versus his 32 votes.
Chief Siarnicki advances to the Fiery Four semi-final round.
For those new to the game, the face-off challenge is simple: vote for who you think took the challenge first; we’ll reveal the true order after the bracket is complete.
Our mission is also simple: give firefighters a reason to have a bit of fun and keep the challenge alive — and the associated donations made to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
Cast your vote below on which fire service leader you think completed the challenge first. At the end of the game, contest winners will be randomly selected and will receive a FireRescue1 T-shirt and challenge coin as a prize.
